Shut Up and Kiss Me by Jessica Lemmon

Cade: I tried. I really tried. I should be out of this small town by now, finishing my law degree and partnering up with my buddies, but I couldn’t resist one last street race. Now I’m sidelined in the hospital, and while my injuries will heal, I’m not so sure my voice will return. What kind of attorney can’t talk? Yeah, exactly. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to come back from this... until Tasha Montgomery reawakens every competitive bone in my body.

 Tasha: I nearly watched Cade Wilson die on that lonely stretch of road. He’s damn lucky just to be alive, even if he doesn’t realize it. I know he’s destined for bigger and better things, but I don’t mind helping him get there as he relearns everything he took for granted. Cade’s a good student, a real perfectionist; I can tell how much his stutter bothers him. But when he lets his kisses do the talking, everything else disappears. And one day, maybe he’ll be able to tell me that he wants me—as much as I want him.

Elizabeth's Review

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Review Copy Provided by Publisher via Net Galley

I feel like a little bit of a bad guy just giving this 3 stars because I have always enjoyed Ms. Lemmon's work in the past and this one was fun too, but I didn't feel like it really measured up to her normal standards.
I liked Cade and Tasha and their connection via his healing process. These two also had more in common than it seemed on the surface.
My struggle is with the secondary characters, especially Tasha's father and ex boyfriend. There seemed to be something going on with them, but we were never clued into what. Tasha's father also does a complete 180 personality wise and the explanation fell a bit flat for me.
If I focus and Cade and Tasha, this comes pretty close to what I would expect from Ms. Lemmon, but the secondary issues are a factor for me. It's still a fun book, just not all that I hoped it would be.
